Description

From the balcony on the north side of the Clocktower, climb up through fins and cracks up to a left-leaning dihedral that begins at a ledge. Continue up this to a roof. Plug good gear in the horizontal, then pull yourself over on big holds to another ledge. Notice the ancient bolts - Long Dong's first! Do a final pullup onto the summit, and build a gear anchor. Descend via nearby bolted anchor.

Location

North face of the Clocktower. Starts at a balcony of stone below the Presidents area and above the main Clocktower platform.

Protection

Gear to 3", trad anchor for belay/TR
Rappel: 316 steel (2011) or nearby bomber sling+rope w/ titanium rings (2016)
